So fellow travelers, a bit of Light and Winter Wonder found on a late afternoon.
Distant Light glistens
Hidden fairy pond revealed
Secret cache of joy
I discovered this gem on a walk last week before endless steel grey clouds locked the skies in dreary monotones. It was one of those days when bone chilling cold tries to snatch the air back out of your lungs as you breathe but brilliant sunshine bids you take the risk. Blinding snow crunched under foot like broken glass as I walked this trail lost in somber thoughts about the changes the coming year might bring. A solitary chickadee called from an distant barren tree. Clarion notes which sang a reminder that “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”*
Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready.
* Hamlet Act 2 Scene 2~ I don’t quote The Bard often, but when I do it’s because we are analyzing Shakespeare in an English class one of my students is in. The line seemed a fitting reminder as inauguration day approaches
